[Electronista] LG Optimus Vu official, tries phone-tablet crossover game

LG has officially provided details surrounding the Optimus Vu, its own take on the same blurring of lines between the phone and tablet as Samsung's Galaxy Note. True to leaks, the device has a five-inch display like its Samsung rival but uses a 4:3 aspect ratio like the Pantech Pocket. The 1024x768, color-rich IPS display is said to improve text reading, LG claimed, although the ratio could make it even wider than the Galaxy Note.

The design shares the Note's concept of bundling a pen, although the phone body is much thinner at 8.5mm (0.33in) thick. Its screen makes it relatively readable outside at 650 nits of brightness, which isn't as high as the 700 on a phone like the Optimus Black but is high in mobile. A dual-core 1.5GHz processor, an eight-megapixel rear camera, a 1.3-megapixel front camera, and a skinned Android 2.3 make it a close relative of the Optimus LTE.

Every version will have 32GB of built-in storage and a 2,080mAh battery are common to every country. They also get DLNA media sharing, HDMI video, and Wi-Fi Direct, although only South Korea will get T-DMB over-the-air TV tuning.

The release shows LG following Samsung closely and also suggests that they may have hit creative barriers.

I seriously wish they made a phone like this. I have large hands.

not a big fan of the 4:3 resolution, for a mini tablet its fine but for the phone side of things its very limiting especially when it comes to one handed use. I'd rather have a galaxy note just because of the display.

Too freaking big, even my low res phone is preferable to a massive box like this.
